Godwiki pages and structure

Hey there Checkday.

So, I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt that your habit of creating pages with profanity or nonsense is exuberance and misunderstanding, and not mischief. If it is mischief, and you keep adding meaningless pages and content, we'll treat it as vandalism and escalate the issue.

However, as I said, I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt, and explain a could of things to help get you oriented.

The only places where you can add random content of your choice (things like creating a page with a single word, are your own user pages. You have one, officially, and two in practice: User:Checkday and Checkday. You then have one Talk page — this page — which is how other people, like me, can talk to you. I have one too, if you want to say anything to me. All conversations, content, and edits on wikis are public, and can be seen by anyone.

The other namespaces (GodWiki, GodWiki talk, Template, Help, etc) are reserved for special uses and are not for user content. Unless you understand what they're for and are using them that way, I suggest keeping away from them, or people may treat it as vandalism and ask for Dev intervention. That can lead to the pages being deleted, and temporary bans from editing the Godwiki at all. The Devs generally find it irritating when a user is messing up the Godwiki for people, and making work for them.


Right now, you've created a situation where your real user page is redirecting to the wrong place. You need to edit your User page to remove the line:

 #REDIRECT [[GodWiki:Checkday]]

to fix this. Then, you're absolutely free to use the page at User:Checkday however you like, as long as you don't break the game rules or the terms of service. That means no profanity or offensive language, as mentioned already last week when you added profanity, which has been deleted.

Hope this clears things up for you. You might like to take a look at the Godwiki Guidebook, Creators Manual, and Guideline: God Articles for some more helpful advice on how things work around here, how to create cool content, and how to build an interesting user page. 😊 -- Djonni (talk) 06:16, 18 December 2019 (UTC)
